Team based learning

4 September 2008

I have seen the future and it’s name is “Team based learning”

Today, I went to Larry Michaelsen’s seminar on Team Based Learning

He was impressive. Next year I will redesign one course around Team Based Learning (yes, it was that good).

I have been using a range of elements in my own teaching, that are compatible with Team Based Learning. However, it is clear to me that Larry has spent much more time thinking about his teaching than I have (he is, after all, an emeritus professor and has been using this approach for 25 years). So, I think he has a much more robust way of connect the elements together.

A few notes:

He has written a few books many of which are about Team Based Learning.

Apart from the main :Team Based Learning web-site”, information can also be found here.
